TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The Florida State soccer team (4-3) returned to
the national rankings in three polls Tuesday. The Seminoles defeated No. 7
Texas A&M 4-1 and challenged No. 5 Clemson for 88 minutes before falling
3-2 on a goal in the last two minutes of regulation time.
The Seminoles returned to the national polls after two impressive
showings at the Seminole Sports Complex this past weekend. FSU is currently
No. 15 in the Soccer America poll, 21st in the NSCAA coaches poll and
ranked-25th in the Soccer Poll.com soccer writer’s poll.
Florida State defeated the No. 7 Texas A&M Aggies Friday, which
marked their second win against a top 10 team this season. Florida State
then opened ACC play Sunday against the 5th-ranked Clemson Tigers. The
Seminoles and Tigers were tied 2-2 before Clemson scored the game-winning
goal with less than two-minutes remaining in regulation time.
The No. 15 ranking is the highest national ranking ever for the
Seminole soccer program and marks the second time Florida State has
achieved a national ranking this season.
